U.S. dermatology departments have a low proportion of underrepresented in medicine faculty, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Researchers assessed long-term trends in sex, race and ethnicity to determine faculty diversity and calculated the proportion of faculty by sex and underrepresented in medicine (URM) status from 1970 to 2018. Information from the Association of American Medical Colleges Faculty Roster was used for the study.
